Hanning Speke, John - John Hanning Speke (1827-1864) was a member of the British army that spent the second part of his life seeking the sources of the Nile in Africa. He took part in the first expeditions leaded by Burton and in one occasion both of them barely survived and escaped their captors who had wounded them very seriously with spears and arrows. Along with Burton, Hanning Speke discovered Lake Tanganyika and in another expedition leaded by James A. Grant, he claimed to have discovered at last the sources of the mighty river of the Pharaos. However, his former associate, Burton, rejected his claim.
